This is one of my new favorites. Looked for a restaurant close to Symphony Hall and was reluctant based on a few prior reviews. However, my experience was exceptional. The lobster and smoked clam risotto was outstanding (don't expect tons of lobster or creamy texture, but expect amazing and complex flavors and textures). Server recommended and let me sample a couple of wines, both of which paired very nicely. The bread is phenomenal. The caprese salad was not traditional and very uniquely prepared, but it was nothing less than extraordinary. Service was prompt, and the server was attentive, very kind, and always available. The prices were no different than comparable restaurants downtown. I'm definitely going back. More...

Great italian food, excellent service, great ambiance. Only downgraded slightly because kitchen closed at 9pm, which seems a bit early to me for a downtown restaurant. So long as you go early, you won't be disappointed! More...

Overall a good experience! Food was nice and the waiter was really friendly. All the recommended dishes were excellent. My only complain is none of the secondi were available when we went. . so that was a bit disappointing. Food/drinks are on the pricier side but decent quality. More...

We had an early dinner here after a Sunday matinee at SD City Ballet. We usually come here on these occasions. At that time, the restaurant is not noisy (I don’t know how it gets later in the evening or on other nights). The food is good — the pizza dough is particularly good — and the service was very attentive and prompt. The interior is stylish in an “industrial chic” kind of way, and comfortable. Good vibe. We will return. More...

What a wonderful evening! After we showed an interest, Chef Carlos hooked us up with some of the delicious pickles and fermentations he's been working on lately. The pizza was top notch and the service was too. We can't wait to come back. More...

Some great food options in the gnocchi and wood fired pizza. However, we felt it was overpriced for the offering. Wine was inexpensive by the bottle, certainly a plus.

Far too long of a wait for our food and the portions were very small for the price. Waiter was very nice and checked on us several times and the wine was fabulous!

BIGA was one of the most wonderful dining experience my husband and I have ever had. The food, the service, the music, all of it, absolutely excellent! Our server, Brandon, was incredibly genuine and helped to make our evening so special. Also, possibly the best pizza I’ve ever eaten! More...

The food was great, but not the best I've ever had.The service was friendly, but didn't blow me away (the server didn't have much to offer when I asked for recommendations)The atmosphere was cool and clean, but not unique. The locally sourced ingredients is great, but it could have been presented more. I could have gone through the whole experience without even noticing this great selling point. The server could have done more to explain and describe the source of the ingredients.The value was fine. As with many "nicer" places you get pretty small portions, but to be fair, the pricing isn't exorbitant, so it's forgivable.Overall, yeah, I would tell someone to check it out if they were interested, but would not necessarily go out of my way to say "you gotta go!"

We had a delicious dinner at BIGA. Our server was very knowledgeable about each of the dishes - the menu was changing but our server was well versed on the way some of the dishes may be different. The arugula salad was light and perfectly dressed. I had the Carbonara with egg white "foam". This was a very delightful and unique version of carbonara The pasta was perfectly cooked and the dish was beautifully presented. More...

Wonderful food. We had a party of 5 so we were able to taste many menu offerings. The risotto and pizzas were our favorites. We started with the bread sampler. Olive tapenade was just a delight for the senses. We tried the gelato for dessert. Salted caramel was heavenly. Can’t wait to go back to Biga. More...

Delicious, authentic Italian food. The pasta is so fresh, the pizzas are heavenly and the burrata - wow! I had the potato-crusted seabass which was also very good. It was my daughter's 20th birthday and they brought her a bananas flambe. It was very dramatic when they set it ablaze and our wonderful server sang "Happy Birthday!" Such a great dining experience!

The service was great, the food was good, but there is one thing the restaurant should definitely change: the bathroom is at the end of a dirty corridor with a bad smell and is not clean. We use to say that the toilets reflects the overall quality of the restaurant. It really requires attention. More...
